Long Time No See

Howdy everyone. Been ages since I last checked in. Still got my '09 Beastie with all the toys, but did not get to ride much this year after July. Trips, moved office, blah, blah, blah. All good on my end, but an August rehab stint that I was willing to pay for my youngest son cost me the savings I had for one of those Yamahauler Tracer's. I'll still get one sometime.

Best to everyone and I look forward to seeing your poetic prose again and meeting new folks that are now on board. Is Joe still out there?

Hey Ray, I'm still around. Not riding much its been harder getting on and off the bike with my hip and knee problems. Hate to hear about your son. Hopefully he'll get things squared away. I'm looking around at lower bikes that will fit me comfortable. Hell I've been looking at scooters to...

Are you doing any physical therapy? Look into Dry Needling and Yoga style stretching.

But seriously, the Road Glide with just a solo seat is very easy to get on and a comfortable riding position.

Thanks Joe, good seeing your voice. Sorry about your ills. I'd suggest you get an HD Iron, but with your big frame you would probably be dragging your knuckles, and with that little peanut tank you would be stopin for gas every 2 hours.

Son moved out of the country club atmosphere in Dana Point and is now up in the beautiful armpit, being Riverside. We were out to see him in mid December and I never called you to get together since we were commuting all the time from down in Oceanside. Take care my friend.

Thanks dadsafrantic. Been to the dance 3 times now, and unfortunately he is no longer on our insurance. He lost his car this time. Think my wife is finally convinced that we should attend some Alanon meetings. Take care. I have loved this forum since i joined back in 2013 I believe.

Hey Fastoman, good to see your voice also. Is Eddy still bragging about the 70 degree "cold" days in Arizona? Take care and talk to you soon.

Oh god having to commute from Oceanside to Riverside is a nightmare. We had a shop at the Riverside Plaza Mall and commuted from Cerritos to there for about a year and a half. I would use the bike a lot to combat the traffic. Hope your boy can come home soon. All the best to you and your family...
